To the person who uploaded the (PDF) file for William's Capitalism and Slavery, is the book still in copyright or, if so, did you obtain permission to upload it to this site?

Subject: Williams
thanks, very important book, what Williams pointed us, is common sense in most academic circles now, but at the time he set of to reorientate the world, or the smugness of European exeptionalism.

Subject: This will help alot.
Currently doing a BA (honours) History. The section of my current module referred to this title but did not provide it as a resource.

The first two reviewers need to get off the 'we hate socialism' bandwagon and learn some objectivity.

Subject: A classic and one of the crucial books on the subject
This is a well-researched and beautifully-written book. To read it is to remind oneself of the time when serious academics actually wrote well. The author is a major figure in the study of the history of the Caribbean and of the Atlantic slave trade. This particular work is widely acknowledged as his masterpiece and perhaps one of the most important books ever published on the subject. In it Williams makes an argument for the importance of slavery in the development of capitalism in Britain and later for the role of early industrial capitalism as a deciding factor in the abolition of the slave trade. It is well worth reading and still holds up these many years later.

As to the implied political aspects of the publication--read the front matter; published by the Univ of North Carolina Press in 1944. A hotbed of socialism, er, no.

Subject: the previous reviews make no sense
The first chapter should be required reading in
public schools for their history class in every
english speaking country.

I haven't read the rest yet, but the beginning
scholarship is impeccable in exposing the dirty
dealings of the various elites.

Baldly stating the motives and practices used is
unpopular with the kneejerkers of fantasyland.

Good Book.

Subject: Read who scanned this book
It is apparent that this minor book was found scanned and place here in the archive for propaganda purposes.

Reviewer: MiguelSanchez - 1.00 out of 5 stars - May 27, 2010
Subject: leftist propaganda
I looked many times at the front to be sure, that this is not the party manifesto of a (national-)socialist party.
It's very biased, revisionist and non-scientified. The reader really gets an idea of how much hate the author wants to stir up.
